As you can tell from the title of my blog, I am officailly feelling better! Woo-hoo!!!!! I am going to go hit the gym -- I am really looking forward to being able to get on the elliptical for a bit and get some strength training in. Don't get me wrong, I am loving the yoga (and still got up and did a 25 min practice this morning) but it will be nice to be "moving" normal again! I am just happy to be feeling better again. Seems like once a year I get a heck of a cold that takes me down for a bit, and this was mine! If that is the worst of it for me this year, I am NOT complaining!!! I hear a lot of people talk about being brought down by the flu and bronchitis and I will deal with a midget cold! All things in perspective!
Swimming tonight! I will be so excited to bring Mr Baby in to play. He is going to LOVE it!! I have got to swing by the store and get him some swim diapers. I am hoping he won't be needing them for too long. He has been going potty quite a bit. I am letting him take the lead on the potty training for right now and figured I would hit the real thing when the weather warms up -- I think it is easier that way because he can go without his pants for awhile. I will be so incredibly happy to be out of diapers!!!
Started my spring cleaning yesterday and cleaned out Mr. Baby's room -- he had WAY too many toys. I boxed up about 85% of them and organized his closet so they fit very neatly in there. I don't know if that is part of the problem with him sometimes, he has too many to choose from and because of that doesn't play with any of them! Don't know. Either way, there is NO reason for a kid to have that many toys! I am so done with this whole holiday, buying stuff to buy stuff. I figured for Easter, I will buy each one thing -- DD wans roller skates, I am going to get Big Brother a Star Wars pop up book that they had at Barnes and Noble -- VERY cool! and Mr. Baby is getting a tricycle. Easy peasy. I will most likely get each a small bit of candy, but I am not filling their baskets. No reason for it!
Big Brother is reading soo good! He gets frustrated very easy and will start crying. I feel bad for him. I am just trying so hard to keep up with the encouragement. I would love to see him to enjoy to read. He is doing so good and I am very proud of him. It is amazing to see his writing samples that his teacher sent home. He is sounding out words now and able to put together words from that. He is doing great!!!
For now, I am off to email the teacher and got to officially start the day, I guess. So glad to be feeling better! =)
Okay, I have now discovered how wonderful it is to reap the benefits of hard work! Woo-hoo!! I went to the store and saw some really cute pants (something I have always dreaded doing -- pants shopping!) and grabbed a couple of size 10's and larges and to mu utter amazement and extreme joy they were all TOO BIG!!! Woot!! I gladly went back and grabbed the mediums and 8's and was so happy to put them on and not have to squeeze into them and feel uncomfortable in them! I can do this! This is my life now. Maintenance is going to be an obtainable goal for me, I know that it is! It makes me feel good to come home hungry and WANT that healthy green stuff (also known as salad) sitting in the fridge instead of fixing up a plate of greasy stuff or worse, stopping through the drive thru! My changes have come a million-fold and I am so happy for them!!! I am happy to be me and look in the mirror and truly LIKE what I see. For the first time in... well, forever, I am content to be me and look like me! Yea!
